Monday Face VS 4b
18m. Steep and juggy wall-climbing that requires a confident approach. Start at a small pinnacle of rock that sits flush to the face at the left end of the platform. 18m. Move up onto the pinnacle, step right and climb the hold plastered steep wall to a ledge. Finish up the corner and wall to its left. © ROCKFAX
Steep but juggy and fun climbing for the first half becomes easier and less steep on the second half. Eats mid-sized cams. A useful point near the top to thread a sling too. Well protected, but for the last few metres the leader will be out of shout-range of the belayer.

A delight in glorious evening sun. Gear is a bit tricky but I haven't done much trad in a while and haven't climbed on granite in ages. Worth belaying below the ledge just beneath the top i.e. stop before that ledge (there aren't many gear options for belaying).

Some nice jugs but a bit of a one-move wonder with reasonable protection - bottom end HS 4b, certainly not VS 4b, and not worth any stars.
